ALBUQUERQUE – Throughout the last several seasons, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team has known it has had a very good team top-to-bottom.
The Hilltoppers got a chance to show that off Friday afternoon.
Los Alamos took part in the Albuquerque Public Schools Relays Friday at Milne Stadium. Los Alamos took home top honors in the meet, which consisted entirely of relay events, with a total of 86 points, 20 points better than the St. Pius X Sartans, seen as one of the biggest threats to unseat Los Alamos from its three-year reign as 4A team champion.
“This meet is so much more competitive,” said Hilltopper senior Mariah Zerr. “All the teams, they put in their good girls, their fast legs. It’s fun to see all these different types of relays and the girls competing in them.”
One of the more unusual races the meet features in the 400-meter shuttle hurdles, where competitors run 100 meters in one direction and, after completing that, a teammate runs in the adjacent lane in the opposite direction.
Los Alamos didn’t compete in that event but the look of the track in front of the competitors can be discombobulating – a virtual sea of hurdles. As one St. Pius runner put it, “I don’t even know what I’m doing.”
